3D News, GL, DirectX "The leading question most of you are likely wondering is why there hasn't been anymore ATI GPU specifications released in over two months. Well, as we have shared in earlier articles, AMD has had limited staff devoted to sanitizing the documentation and getting it cleared by their legal department for release. However, that is about to change. AMD's John Bridgman has confirmed that they are in the process of hiring new people to do all of the planned documentation and support work that will help the open-source community. Within a couple weeks, these new AMD employees will begin this crusade."

Well, Urban Terror is cool, but it is not exactly something to show of 3d on Linux, except if you want to show that Linux can compete graphic wise with Amiga.

IMHO, the most beautiful free FPS is True Combat which is built on Enemy Territory.
